Railways plans dedicated counters for tatkal tickets

 NEW DELHI: Faced with mounting complaints of misuse of tatkal scheme, railways are planning to have dedicated counters and separate time slots for selling tatkal tickets.

Plans are afoot to install CCTV cameras at the ticket counters to keep a close watch on tatkal ticket seekers and making e-reservation more fool-proof.

"Besides, we have decided to bar booking clerks from carrying mobile to reservation counters," said Northern Railway general manager V K Gupta, while other officers said the "character of the tatkal scheme will be changed".

Talking to reporters here, Gupta said separate counters and time slots for tatkal reservation would also be put in place very soon to prevent touts from misusing the scheme.

His comments come a day after the Railway Board reviewed the tatkal scheme, which was introduced to help passengers travelling on emergency. However, there have been increased complaints that passengers have been unable to exploit the scheme properly, thanks to the role of touts.

Despite a number of changes carried out in the scheme in the recent past including reducing the days for reserving tatkal tickets from five to only one day and barring web-based agents from booking tickets during the first hours, touts continued to exploit the scheme, selling tatkal tickets at a premium.

At present, tatkal scheme is available in around 2677 trains which translates to around 1.71 lakh berths. In 2011-12, earning from the scheme stood at Rs 847 crore.

Amendment in Tatkal Scheme -RAILWAYS

With a view to further improve the delivery of Tatkal tickets to passengers, the Ministry of Railways has decided that with effect from 10.07.2012 booking of Tatkal ticket will start at 1000 hours on the previous day of journey from train originating station instead of 0800 hours at present.

No authorised agents, including agents of IRCTC and RTSAs/RTAs will be allowed to book Tatkal tickets from 1000 hours to 1200 hours. The existing restriction of not allowing these agents booking of general tickets on the opening day from 0800 hours to 1000 hours will also continue.

Comptroller Defence Accounts and Pension department raises concern over transfer of employees


At a meeting of employees and officers of Comptroller Defence Accounts and Pension (CDA-P) held on Tuesday the speakers expressed concern over the decision of the central government to change the character of Allahabad office which, until now has been treated as a static office.

Addressing the meeting, the general secretary of employees union, Nirmal Chandra Srivastava said that the policy change has resulted in mass transfer of 15 assistant accounts officer to different parts of the country. The office, which was shifted after independence from Lahore to Allahabad was declared a static office where posting of employees was permanent in nature. However the recent decision of transferring 15 assistant accounts officer would disturb the existing system of Allahabad office given the fact that records of pensioners dating back to 80 years have been preserved safely.Assuring to take up the issue with union defence minister, Samajwadi Party (SP) national general secretary and Allahabad MP, Rewati Raman Singh said that he would persuade the minister to restore static status to Allahabad office.

This would also preserve the status of Allahabad, which has always remained a hub of central government offices in the state.

He said that issues related to welfare of employees would be fought from the streets to parliament and it would be ensured that ambulance facility for employees would be restored. Besides the status of Motilal Nehru Medical College would be upgraded to the level of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and land for the same has been earmarked in the Naini Industrial Area.

An employee leader Sandhya said that employees of CDA Pension department be provided canteen facilities after retirement also like their counterparts in the army.

IIT-K students too oppose CET



Kanpur: After the academic senate of IIT-Kanpur disapproved the proposed single examination for engineering courses from 2013, the student senate of the same institute has also expressed dissatisfaction and rendered its full support to their faculty members.

The students of IIT-Kanpur through their student senate have turned down the Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD) and IIT council's decision of implementing the Common Entrance Test ( CET) for all IITs, NITs and IIITs from 2013 instead of conducting Joint Entrance Exam (JEE).

TOI has a copy of the letter written by the acting convener of the student senate to Chairman, Senate, Prof S G Dhande, who is also the Director of IIT-Kanpur, raising strong objection on the proposed implementation of single examination for engineering courses in the country. The students of the prestigious institute have said that the proposed examination is full of flaws from both academic and social point of view.

The student senate had written to Chairman, Senate Prof S G Dhande on June 7 demanding that their viewpoint about the proposed selection process for IITs be considered during the Friday's (June 8) meeting of the academic senate. The students were of an opinion that the changes in "the selection process are bound to increase stress on students, make admission system extremely fragile, corruptible and luck-based, further aggravating the very problems these changes seek to address".

The latter written to Prof Dhande further read that although a large number of exams increase the stress on students, taking the other extreme of just a single exam is even worse.

It also read that clubbing all exams into one would simply increase the pressure of performance on the students to a great extent and would make the future of the millions of engineering aspirants of the country dependent on one single day.

The students of IIT-Kanpur have also discarded the MHRD and IIT Council's proposal of giving weightage to the board examination.

The students further opined that the weightage being given to the board examination raises the immediate question of the differing levels of fairness, uniformity of standards and transparency among the examinations of the 42 different boards of the country.

"We strongly believe that no amount of normalization whatsoever can completely eliminate the problems of inconsistency, opacity, unfairness and subjectivity in the board exams," opined the student senate of IIT-Kanpur.One of the students, willing not to be named, said that as the exact details of the new system are still to be finalized, these students shall be denied full knowledge of the selection procedure for a considerable amount of time even now.

Thus, introducing this system in 2013 would only result in a marked failure and inevitable stress on the students appearing in 2013 due to "contingent uncertainties".

The recipients of the prestigious President's Gold Medal, Director's Gold Medal, Ratan Swarup Memorial Prize have raised objection on the changes in the JEE pattern from the year 2013.

These meritorious students in one voice had said that they do not want that the government should interfere in the way the IITs conduct the JEE. They said that JEE is a foolproof system to ascertain the calibre of the student and it is through this screening process that the sharpest of the brains reach IITs. They had also said that if any change in the exam pattern is done especially taking into consideration the student's performance in class XII, the standard of JEE and the IITs will fall.

Shubhayu Chatterjee, Ankit Kumar and Ashish Gupta, all receipients of the President's Gold Medal, Tej Pratap winner of Director's Gold Medal, Abhinav Prateek, winner of Ratan Swarup Memorial Prize and Parnika Agrawal, recipient of General Proficiency Award and Batra Gold Medal had one opinion in common that the new pattern of JEE to be introduced in 2013 is not the right move of the MHRD. The students had said that the faculty members of IITs have been successfully conducting JEE for past so many years and there was no ideal base to wind off this system. The students also opined that due to existence of different boards in the country, measuring the performance of the students based on their class XII results, is not possible on the basis of an statistical formula as it has been devised. Therefore, the JEE should be conducted the way it is being held across the country for years now.

EXPECTED DEARNESS ALLOWANCE(DA) JULY 2012

Central D.A. from July'12 may be 7% again. Subject to AICPIN data for the next two months remaining in the current level, the following assumption is being made. The AICPIN data for April 12 has been recently published. It rises to 4 points and reached 205. We know that D.A. is calculated on the basis for 12 months average. To calculate the D.A. payable from 1st July 2012, we need the figures of May and June 2012 which are to be released on 30.06.12 and 31.07.12 respectively. If the data remains for the next two months in the same level, i.e. 205, the hike will be 7%. Even if it marginally drops 1 point in any of the months, the rise will be still 7% which will take the total D.A. to 72%. Considering the latest hike in petrol price, it is unlikely that the index may drop in the next months. So we can guess the next D.A. hike @7%, revising our previous guess work.

Charge sheet can’t be quashed in a casual manner: SC


 A charge sheet filed in departmental proceeding cannot be quashed by courts unless it adversely affects the rights of the aggrieved employee, the Supreme Court has held.

“In fact, charge sheet does not infringe the right of a party. It is only when a final order imposing the punishment or otherwise adversely affecting a party is passed, it may have a grievance and cause of action.

“Thus, a charge sheet or show cause notice in disciplinary proceedings should not ordinarily be quashed by the court,” said a bench of justices B S Chauhan and Dipak Misra, in an order.

The bench passed the order while disposing of an appeal by the Ministry of Defence challenging a Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) order quashing the charge sheet against one Prabhash Chandra Mirdha in a two-decade old bribery case.

“Law does not permit quashing of charge sheet in a routine manner. In case the delinquent employee has any grievance in respect of the charge sheet, he must raise the issue by filing a representation and wait for the decision of the disciplinary authority thereon.

“In case the charge sheet is challenged before a court/ tribunal on the ground of delay in initiation of disciplinary proceedings or delay in concluding the proceedings, the court/ tribunal may quash the charge sheet after considering the gravity of the charge and all relevant factors involved in the case after weighing all the facts, both for and against the delinquent employee, and must reach the conclusion which is just and proper in the circumstance,” the bench said.

The bench said charge sheet cannot generally be a subject matter of challenge as it does not adversely affect the rights of the delinquent unless it is established that the same has been issued by an authority not competent to initiate the disciplinary proceedings.
